Difficulty in starting the engine in several occasions at summer 1996. I don't remember how, but the problem was solved and the car is perfect now.
Front washers' motor having sometimes trouble in moving them. As the situation isn't intolerable, I haven't replaced it yet.
Driver's lock not always working perfectly. Also not being replaced.
Exhaust pipe being changed at 40.000 km.
Tachometer giving up after 35.000 km. As it was really annoying, the whole control panel was replaced by a used one.
Roughly speaking, a reliable car (especially compared with other cars from manufacturers boasting about their models' reliability - you know, Volskwagen, Opel etc., as well as the rest of the French firms, Peugeot and Citroen) and of adequate quality.
Road grip is very satisfactory and competent even having in mind the newest cars of its category. (Note that tyres are now 185/65/14 instead of the primary 165/70/13 - all Michelin).
Powerful (80hp), impressive torque, relatively economic and reliable engine, making a little noise, but not annoying.
The most spacious interior in its class, big boot, comfortable running over bad surfaces.
Exterior and interior design too conservative and out of date, but I am compromised with that.
Unfortunately, front brakes lock easily when braking hard - and that can prove to be serious in some cases.
